Helping Those Who Help The Vulnerable

PAT Testing Vital Equipment For Fareshare South West

As a part of our continued support, Adam Gillard from our Equipment Servicing & Testing team has been helping FareShare South West in Plymouth to keep their office equipment compliant and up-to-date with their PAT testing.

FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, they take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to nearly 8,500 frontline charities and community groups. The food redistributed is nutritious and good to eat. It reaches charities across the UK, including school breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs, homeless shelters, and community cafes. Every week FareShare provides enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people.

Reflecting on the importance of our support of good causes such as FareShare South West, Megan Miotla from Shield’s testing & Maintenance team, commented, “Supporting great charitable initiatives such as FareShare is a real positive for the team, as it provides us with the opportunity to assist in the support of the vulnerable and those in need.  FareShare has always made a significant impact across the country, and their support is needed now more than ever. We will continue to help support their South West offices whenever we can.”

Charlotte Hendy, from FareShare, commented, “I’d like to thank Shield for doing all the PAT testing at all 3 FareShare Southwest sites free of charge. Being a not-for-profit charity which relies on funding with strict budgets, this has saved the charity money and enabled us to put it towards other projects and help ensure FareShare is running its best on a daily basis. Thank you to Megan for speaking with Luke and their generosity in arranging all the visits, and to Adam for completing the work.”
